Hi and welcome to our site!Sorry for your situation. Business expenses are the cost of carrying on a trade or business. These expenses are usually deductible if the business is operated to make a profit.To be deductible, a business expense must be both ordinary and necessary. An ordinary expense is one that is common and accepted in your trade or business. A necessary expense is one that is helpful and appropriate for your trade or business. An expense does not have to be indispensable to be considered necessary.Based on information you provided - legal expenses are neither ordinary nor necessary for your trade or business - and may not be deducted as business related.Sorry if you expected differently.
Yah. Thought it was a long shot. Your answers concurs with others. Thanks
